A day rarely passes that I don't say, "I want to be friends with ______________." (Fill in the blank!) There are so many famous--and infamous--folks out there that I'm positive would be all BFF with me, if we were to ever meet. In person, that is.
And then we'd begin our relationship and say things like, "Where have you been all my life?" or "Let's get some Taco Bell before watching the Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman marathon," while giving each other mani/pedis and guiltily flipping through the pages of the Enquirer.
Thusly, I've decided to start a new, regular feature here in Lulaville, called, "I Want To Be Friends With..." Please play along with me, alrighty?
Have you ever seen Almost Famous?
It's only one of my most favorite movies in the history of ever.
And it's the film that introduced me to the fantastically fabulous
(Pictured here with Frances McDormand & Patrick Fugit.)
Here's the trailer--please watch. No really, you have to see it. My fave Zooey moment comes at 0:12.
Zooey is my style icon.
Witness this adorableness:
(I lust after those shoes. Mary Jane heels. Perfection!)
On anyone else this dress would be cheesy.
Zooey makes it fresh, whimsical, and utterly chic.
She's a genius, clearly.
I want Zooey to take me shopping...and school me in her ways.
And if it's not enough that she's an amazing actress and fashionista, Zooey is also an utterly talented musician. She performs with the awesome M. Ward, under the name of "She & Him." Please love this video with me, as it is completely enjoyable.
Do I love that She & Him took a Motown classic (by the great Smokey Robinson & The Miracles) and made it their own? I do. Oh, I really do.
In honor of my inaugural edition of "I Want To Be Friends With..." I am now offering the chance to give one of you something especially delightful.
Check out this gorgeous wristlet & iPod (or cell) holder:
Are these not two fantastic pieces?
These make me feel uber-sassy...like Zooey!*
The inside of the wristlet is the same fabric as the flower--so chic!
Sweet Abby, also known as sister to sweet Bekah, has a new Etsy shop, Sewing Snails. ("Snails" is her nickname, and what I call Abby...because Bekah calls her "Snails.") Check out her offerings...the citrus half-apron is cleverly cute. I'm talking better-than-Anthropologie, y'all. Really & truly!
Want a chance at winning the wristlet and iPod (or cell) pouch? If you live in the US or Canada, simply leave a comment and tell me whom you'd want to be friends with. Other than me, that is. Comments will be closed at 11:59 pm(Eastern time) on Thursday, November 5.
